Five things to know about land property rights in East Asia and the Pacific

Blog post on the Land Portal website, by Ryan Flynn

In 2020 Prindex – the first ever global measure of land and property rights – released its full 140-country dataset. The results are sobering. Almost 1 billion people around the world feel it is likely or very likely that they will lose their land or home within the next five years.

  1. There are more people living in East Asia and the Pacific that feel insecure than in any other region;
  2. Levels of insecurity vary widely in the region;
  3. Renters are far more likely than owners to feel insecure;
  4. Young people are especially vulnerable;
  5. The gap in perceived insecurity between high- and low-income groups is wider in wealthier countries.
